The main purpose of PranaPad is to serve as crystal therapy and meditation cushion but it can also be used as crystal therapy during sleeping, driving or any other stationary activity. You can also use it to improve the quality of the water you drink use to water your plants or you can use it to support the wellbeing and health of your pets.
The crystal therapy
Crystals in PranaPad work on you whenever you are near them. They work best if they are directly below you. The crystals are placed on the bottom of PranaPad so you can easily access it via a zip locker.
It is recommended you use the crystals for at least 15 minutes every day. There is no upper time limit for using the PranaPad.
You will mostly use PranaPad for meditation, during which it will work on you via crystal therapy in general and additionally enhance your meditation.
The crystals will also affect your body water making it more fluent and energized. This is also known as the consciousness of water.
Our bodies consist of more than 60% water. For optimal health we should drink about 2.5 liter water daily. PranaPad changes the crystal structure of this water making it energized and more fluent. This then effects every cell of your body.
If you want you can use the crystals separated from the meditation cushion. You can easily remove it from the bottom of the Zafu and put it on your chair, sofa, car seat or your bed to gain even more from crystal therapy.
Remember that crystals emit but also receive vibrations and they get tuned to a specific person. It is therefore recommended that only one person uses a single PranaPad. If you tend to give PranaPad to somebody else, please purge it beforehand.
Consciousness of Water
Water is the biggest and most important part of our body. Because the water we drink enters every part of our body, the quality of our drinking water has an enormous impact on our health.
The crystals in PranaPad can change the molecular structure of the water, making it more fluent and able to form crystals itself. It has been shown that such energized water has a structure similar to pure, natural spring water.
Aside drinking water, PranaPad can energize other liquids you use in your household, even the water you use for watering your plants.
To energize your water you just put it on the PranaPad for 20 minutes. We recommend you to use natural containers such as glass. Try to avoid plastic.
The meditation cushion
As a meditation cushion, PranaPad supports your posture and cushions your knees and ankles during sitting meditation. The crystal pad within PranaPad supports your energy, physical, psychical and spiritual balance and enhances other positive aspects of meditation.
The colors and symbols on the PranaPad serve as a powerful guidance and aid in your quest for better physical and mental health.
If you have the Zafu & Zabuton combo you should first place the Zabuton on your favorite meditation spot. Then place the Zafu on the back center of the Zabuton. Place it so that when you sit down on the Zafu, your body sits in the middle of the Zabuton.
If possible sit on the front part. The buckwheat filling will easily conform to your body. If you feel your sitting position is too high you can remove some of the buckwheat filling through the integrated zip locker.
You should be able to sit upright naturally and with ease. Your thighs should point slightly downwards as your pelvis is rotated a bit to the front. This supports the natural curve of your lower back. You should feel comfortable and grounded at the same time.
Now you are ready to meditate.
If you only have the Zafu, just follow the instructions without using the Zabuton. You can use a blanket or a pillow instead the Zabuton if you like.
Maintenance of the PranaPad
If you take care of your PranaPad it will serve you for years.
We tried to make it as easy as possible for you to keep your PranaPad clean and the crystals purged.
Cleaning the PranaPad
All the outer coating is made of durable cotton and is washable. If you notice your PranaPad is getting dirty you just unzip the bottom, take out the crystal pad and the buckwheat filling (it is contained in another cotton coating so it’s easy to remove) and then you can machine or hand wash the outer part of the PranaPad. Do not worry about the colors, they won’t wash off.
We recommend you not to use temperatures higher than 40oC while washing your PranaPad.
When you are done just insert the buckwheat filling and the crystals again and you are set for your next meditation.
Never wash the buckwheat filling as it can tear or become moist and consequently form mold.
The same principle goes for the cotton filled Zabuton.
We recommend you to purge and energize your crystals once or twice a week, depending on how heavy you use them.
To purge and energize the crystals you should open the zip on the bottom of the Zafu and remove the crystal pad. Put the crystal pad in the sun and air, maybe in front of an open window or similar. After 30 minutes your crystals should be ready to be used again.
